The boys only played 29 of over 2300 shows in Canada. In which year did they play the most shows? And for extra credit: when was the longest gap between Canadian shows?

RULES: From memory. No databases or internet searches, of course.

Most Canada shows: 1970, Festival Express?
Longest span: Fall '77 - 3/20/92?

Nope and nope, but thanks for taking a stab at it.

1970 is indeed what I would myself have guessed before I looked into it, but when all was said and done, the Festival Express tour only produced three actual concerts, and there's another year when they played in Canada more.

1977-1992? Like the boys could ever have gone a whole fifteen years without visiting the great land of inclusively liberal immigration policies and red-clad domestic cavalry?

Actually, 1966 came in second, with five recorded shows, all in two weekends in Vancouver:

07/29/66- P.N.E. Garden Auditorium - Vancouver B.C., Canada
07/30/66- P.N.E. Garden Auditorium - Vancouver B.C., Canada
07/31/66- P.N.E. Garden Auditorium - Vancouver B.C., Canada
08/05/66- Afterthought - Vancouver B.C., Canada
08/06/66- Afterthought - Vancouver B.C., Canada

I wonder how they filled their time during the week?

We have a winner--a bonus winner!

EDIT--1967 Canadian shows:

07/13/67- P.N.E. Agradome - Vancouver B.C., Canada
07/31/67- O'Keefe Center - Toronto, Canada
08/01/67- O'Keefe Center - Toronto, Canada
08/02/67- O'Keefe Center - Toronto, Canada
08/03/67- O'Keefe Center - Toronto, Canada
08/04/67- O'Keefe Center - Toronto, Canada
08/05/67- O'Keefe Center - Toronto, Canada
08/06/67- Expo 67 - Montreal, Canada
08/06/67- Place Ville Marie - Montreal, Canada

That one O'Keefe Center run with the Airplane did it. I wonder if that tour was just so the boys could visit Expo 67.
